After a copious amount of speculation and anxiety, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has been confirmed for a release on PC.

During a Twitch TV live stream of MGS gameplay, Hideo Kojima announced that a PC version of the next generation game will indeed be released for PC.

Konami will be using Steam as the distributor of the new PC versions of MGS.

While no release date is scheduled for the release of The Phantom Pain on neither consoles nor PC, the prologue (Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes) will come ahead of the main game.

Since the prologue is already released on consoles, it should be coming to PC shortly.

Below, you can see some new gameplay footage from The Phantom Pain that was shown at Gamescom 2014. Interestingly enough, it is actually a continuation of the gameplay footage from E3 2014.
